  1. You're gonna have to go LGA2011 for that, LGA1155 can only go up to x8/x8 on PCIE 3.0.

    This'd do : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131800

    but then you need a SB-e processor.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131822 is 3.0 16x/8x/16x

    But now I'm wondering if their is 1 GPU on a 8x PCIE wouldn't it bottleneck the others ?

    No, the 3way SLI will still only net 16x/8x/8x...
